Here are some of my favorites from "over the years": Villanova Inn
, New Castle, PA. Great food and cheap beer! Inner-Circle Pizza
in Poland OH. Never disappointed. Great wings, too. Grotto Pizza
in Dewey Beach, DE. Someone above observed that everyting tastes good in the salt-air. Grotto Pizza certainly does. Ledo Pizza
in suburban DC. There's something about sweet sauce on thin square pieces that is a refreshing change of pace. Faccia Luna
, Clarendon Metro, Arlington, VA. We always enjoyed their wood-fired pies with their generous antipasto. Covino's
in Plano, TX is our Dallas-area choice for a "Faccia Luna
" antipasto+pizza meal. Extremely nice folks run this place. And they "import" their wonderful tiramisu from NJ! Mario's
on Wilson BV in Arlington, VA. Their square pieces must be comsumed immediately; they do not "travel"
. I always had one with "pep" and another with BBQ while waiting for Lefty to whip up my ham, steak, & cheese sub. Campisi's Egyptian
in Dallas. Great atmosphere and good (for Dallas) oval-shaped, thin-crust pies.
Since we moved from McLean, VA to Dallas in 2005 a number of "gourmet" pizza places have sprung up, Olivella's
in Park Cities being the best (IMHO) among them. But Fireside Pies
@ Legacy-Plano, Campania
in Southlake, Coal Vines
in Dallas, and Grimaldi's
(of NYC fame) in Allen all serve wonderful Neopolitan-style pizza.
With these places Dallas, the corporate home of Pizza Hut
, has moved from a "chain-pizza desert" to the "big leagues" of pizza.
